As we’ve seen from the previous reviews of OCZs storage devices, their packages are designed with the consumer in mind and are more orientated towards the retail sector than E-tailers.
The OCZ SD Dual comes presented in a plastic blister pack backed with a card outlining the details and specifications of the product contained within. The SD card has been placed inside a protective plastic capsule designed to keep the card from rattling around and sustaining damage.
At the back of the packet is a short description of the product, followed by a chart detailing how many pictures at certain quality levels can be stored on OCZ's range of cards. Also included is some further information on the devices electronic certifications, serial number and company contact details.
When it comes to the looks of an SD card there isn’t really much to talk about as there is very little a manufacturer can do to 'snazz' them up. The OCZ SD Dual is mat black, measures roughly 25mm x 32mm x 2mm and sports an orange, blue and grey OCZ sticker. Underneath this is a shiny metal plate.
However, this card snaps open just over ½ way down to reveal its hidden secret, and in my mind what separates it from other cards on the market. This is where the OCZ SD Dual comes into its own.
On the top left of the card you can see a little white slider. This is a simple write protection switch, which means the data on the card can only be viewed by the user, not overwritten on deleted.
